H.R. No. 612
                                  R E S O L U T I O N
    1-1        WHEREAS, We gather together today to bury Leo Alvarado, not
    1-2  to praise him, for on this day, April 23, 1993, he marks yet
    1-3  another birthday as he travels ever forward on the path to the
    1-4  great beyond; and
    1-5        WHEREAS, Though a rookie member of this chamber, Mr. Alvarado
    1-6  has indeed made a name for himself since his election to the house,
    1-7  and if only the correct picture would accompany that name, he would
    1-8  have it made; and
    1-9        WHEREAS, For the record, we're talking about someone who in
   1-10  San Antonio would be referred to as the good Leo, not the bad Leo,
   1-11  and the big Leo, not the little Leo; in Austin, however, the debate
   1-12  rages on with regard to his goodness, but not his bigness; and
   1-13        WHEREAS, Since his birth in the Alamo City on April 23, 1939,
   1-14  no mission has proven impossible for this Bexar County barrister;
   1-15  although normally known for his sweetness, pleasant demeanor, and
   1-16  docile nature, his membership on the insurance, judicial affairs,
   1-17  and redistricting committees will no doubt give him ample
   1-18  opportunities to reveal a more cantankerous side in the closing
   1-19  weeks of the legislative session; and
   1-20        WHEREAS, Although he has more than a passing acquaintance
   1-21  with father time, as is noted by his Grecian Formula dark brown
   1-22  hair, Mr. Alvarado refuses to admit that "5-4" refers not to his
   1-23  stature, but to his age; and
   1-24        WHEREAS, Despite his many well-documented eccentricities,
    2-1  Mr. Alvarado is still regarded as a real catch by his loving wife,
    2-2  Charlene, though a less patient woman would have thrown him back;
    2-3  in addition, he also is adored by his "school" of children, Rosie,
    2-4  Christina, Miguel, and Carlos, who it is presumed are too young to
    2-5  know any better; and
    2-6        WHEREAS, On this joyous occasion, it gives the members of
    2-7  this chamber great pleasure to award him the special recognition
    2-8  that he so justly deserves; now, therefore, be it
    2-9        RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 73rd Texas
   2-10  Legislature hereby congratulate the Honorable Leo Alvarado, Jr., on
   2-11  the unavoidable occasion of his 54th birthday and extend to him
   2-12  sincere best wishes for continued happiness and success in the few
   2-13  years he has left; and, be it further
   2-14        RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
   2-15  prepared for Mr. Alvarado as an expression of high regard and high
   2-16  jinks by his colleagues in the Texas House of Representatives.
   2-17  jinks by his colleagues in the Texas House of Representatives.
